PRIETO, J.L.. Forensic anthropology in Spain from the forensic medicine perspective. Cuad. med. forense [online]. 2008, n.53-54, pp.189-200. ISSN 1988-611X.

Forensic anthropology has developed in different ways across the world in response to specific country criteria in approaches to forensic investigations, the role that the forensic anthropologist plays in these investigations and their background and/or the type of training system implemented. In Spain, identification when dealing with living subjects and that of the deceased in the legal sphere, is an activity clearly linked to legal and forensic medicine, usually practised inside the organisational system of forensic medicine. Otherwise, the origin of modern forensic medicine and anthropology, on which doctors and naturalists had a significant impact, is coincident in time. In spite of the way covered, forensic anthropology is a growing scientific discipline in Spain, as evidenced by the increase in specific courses, texts and articles published in national and international journals, becoming more and more frequently in recent years.
